St. Francis man accused of sex assault

A St. Francis man faces two felony sexual assault charges in Anoka County District Court.

Scott Michael Poppa, 37,  is due back in court Aug. 6 on two first-degree criminal sexual conduct counts.

At his arraignment July 9, the court set bail at $60,000 without conditions or $30,000 with conditions.

He posted $30,000 bail July 10. Among the conditions are that Poppa must have no unsupervised contact with minors.

According to the complaint, a girl, now 15, reported that a man she identified as Poppa had sexual contact with her, including intercourse, since she was nine or 10 years old.

The complaint alleges that medical records showed the girl had tested positive for herpes in 2008.

Obtaining a search warrant, investigators had Poppa tested for herpes and it allegedly came back positive.
